Ready to Transform Your Oil and Gas Distribution Business?

Start with Sierra

Secure IoT-enabled solutions for oil and gas distribution to increase productivity, improve utilization and reliability, enhance performance and reduce costs.

Connected Oil and Gas

Oil and gas production and distribution occur in some of the most remote, harshest conditions on the planet. The volatility of global energy prices and shifts in supply and demand are putting more economic pressure on the oil and gas industry. Oil and gas companies, in either upstream, downstream or midstream markets face many challenges from efficiently optimizing their resources and capital investments in production facilities to managing the distribution system and assuring safety. Oil and gas firms seek to reduce their risk, increase productivity and lower exploration and production costs.

To meet these challenges, oil and gas firms are investing in wireless Internet of Things (IoT) technology to reimagine the production and distribution chain.

With connected Oil and Gas IoT solutions you can:

Lower costs through increased automation and monitoring of remote processes

Increase workplace safety and ensure environmental protection through collection of real-time sensor data and conditions

Increase operational efficiency through more accurate billing, loss prevention and better maintenance strategies including off-shore equipment

Higher reliability and longevity of equipment through remote monitoring and data collection
